MAGNIFIQUES

MAGNIFIQUES was created on 13 January 2023 at the Grand Théâtre de Provence (Aix-en-Provence). 

Michel Kelemenis brings together 9 luminous artists on stage for an ode to dance and youth. 

On this occasion, discover a series of portraits of the performers of the piece. 

MAGNIFIQUES

Pour Michel Kelemenis, parmi les lueurs de la traversée des deux années écoulées se trouvent les moments en compagnie des danseurs et des danseuses. En leur présence, un désir est né de la redécouverte du Magnificat de Jean-Sébastien Bach, œuvre initiale dans la culture musicale du chorégraphe, convoquant instantanément un souffle de joie intense. La collusion de ces deux temps de bonheur forme aussitôt l’intuition d’une audace : chorégraphier l’oeuvre musicale monumentale dans un grand geste choral.


"Un (de mes jeunes) printemps, écoutant Bach, les fenêtres s’ouvrent sur l’extérieur invitant l’air encore frais et le chant des oiseaux à entrer ; plus que le sentiment d’un beau jour, celui d’une belle vie à son début… ”


Le besoin de clarté connaît une intensité particulière dans les temps d’incertitude. Aussi, aujourd’hui, l’oeuvre de l’illumination résonne avec l’envie d’un geste libre et allégé de propos, reconnaissant aux interprètes de la danse leur statut d’instruments d’exception. 

Hommage aux danseurs et aux danseuses, donc, MAGNIFIQUES regroupe 10 artistes, dont le compositeur Angelos Liaros Copola, pour inventer, dans le plaisir vécu et projeté d’une forme chorale, un hymne à la jeunesse, à cette force qui s’empare du présent à bras-le-corps et filtre le monde vers un autre lendemain, à l’énergie non comptée du sentiment d’immortalité.

Kelemenis, Michel

French dancer and choreographer born in Toulouse in 1960.


After training as a gymnast, Michel Kelemenis begins dancing in Marseille at the age of 17. In 1983, he performs in the Centre Chorégraphique National de Montpellier with Dominique Bagouet and choreographs his first works, among which Aventure coloniale with Angelin Preljocaj in 1984. He was awarded the Villa Médicis Hors les Murs prize in 1987, and founded Kelemenis & cie (Association Plaisir d’Offrir) in the same year. In 1991, he received the Leonardo da Vinci scholarship and Japan’s Uchida Shogakukin fund. His numerous works (more than 60, of which 40 for his company) are performed throughout the world.


In love with movement and dancers, with those exceptional moments when gesture topples a role, Michel Kelemenis structures his works around the search for a balance between abstraction and figuration.


For his personal style, which combines finesse and athletic performance, the choreographer is invited to work with the ballets of the Paris Opera, the Rhin Opera, the Opera du Nord, the Geneva Opera and the Ballet National de Marseille.


In 2000, he directed the lyric and choreographic drama, L’Atlantide, by Henri Tomasi for the Marseille Opera. He has since collaborated with the Festival d’Art Lyrique of Aix-en-Provence: in 2003, he put to movement 4 animalacrobats in Stravinsky’s Renard, directed by Klaus-Michaël Grüber and conducted by Pierre Boulez; in 2004, he assisted Luc Bondy for the chorus movements in Handel’s Hercules, conducted by William Christie.


Since 2008, he starts a reflexion about narration concept, with an approach of creation for young audience.


Through Franch Institute, he participates regularly with French cultural services abroad in Krakow, Kyoto, Johannesburg and Los Angeles, in India, Korea and China. These trips engender training projects, new productions and bilateral exchanges with foreign companies and artists employing various modes of expression.


Numerous programs are organized in higher education and professional training institutions (Coline, Ecole Nationale de Danse de Marseille, and especially with the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Lyon).


The 10th of december 2007, after 10 years of activity at the Studio/Kelemenis, the Conseil Municipal of Marseille votes in favor of the project Centre de danse en résidence conceived and initiated by the choreographer. Intituled KLAP Maison pour la danse, Construction begins in February 2010 with a completion date planned for spring of the following year.
